Fairy Silhouette

Hello everyone!

It's so lovely to be posting a card today.... it's been a while that's for sure! I have had so little crafting time for the past six months due to work commitments and being very busy with two kids! Not complaining about the latter though as they are growing up so fast.... twelve and sixteen now.... and every minute is so precious to spend with them before they become adults and get on with their own lives!

So I made a card using one of a set of pretty Fairy Silhouette stamps by Lindsay Mason Designs which I picked up a while back on Ebay. The dies are a mix of Memory Box, Magnolia and Joy Crafts and I think the paper is MME. The sentiment is also Magnolia and the cream and white flowers are from Wild Orchid. I added a touch of doodling to the die cuts and glittered the fairy's wings.

I noticed that the OCC Challenge today is silhouette's which is very convenient (smile) so I'm entering my card there.

I am also entering Cute Card Thursday where the theme is Fairies and Angels and Flutterby Wednesdays which has an open theme.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hello Tara
Gosh doesn't that MB wreath look fantastic as a frame for your silhouette??? The Pink/Green/White Palette relates warmth and a softness that is comfortable.
There is movement and texture and the dimension brings your design all together beautifully. This card is very pleasing to the eye.
It is my pleasure to comment on this card. Thank you for joining us at Our Creative Corner, we are so thrilled to see your work. Please join us again and good luck!

Tara, she's precious! I love seeing a silhouette in pink and the way you've captured the gorgeous flowers with layering looks so beautiful! So happy you got some crafting time in for yourself and that you were able to join us at Our Creative Corner. :)

I love what you have done with the die cuts, which can look so flat and dull without the imagination and talent you have for lifting them to something very special. Such a pretty card.
